Exporting users to external database Answered

hey team.
I need to export users to add to an external database. What hashing structure/algorithm is being used for the password hashing in the export file?

    Hi Patrick,
    Unfortunately, the password column is not included in our exported CSV files. I believe this is a security measure our dev team put in place to avoid data breaches.
    Let me know if you have any other questions.

    Please confirm the Memberstack version you're using.

    Ahaaa...thought as much 😀 . Thank you for the feedback. Kindly give me some time to reach out to the Dev team to confirm the hashing algo used.
    You would get feedback as soon as possible 🙏

    All passwords are salted and hashed in our database. We do not give out additional information. You can read more about security here https://support.memberstack.com/hc/en-us/articles/4408352626459-Memberstack-Security-Policy

    Josh-Lopez noted! so then it sounds like if we were moving off of meberstack and into a native db we’d have to reset passwords since we know the hashing algo

    That's correct. I know it's a pain. Another idea would be to use our other auth options like Google so then your members could login with their own password any time in the future.
